Mileage

Company sent me to a training course out of town. Perfect excuse to spend some time on the LT and get paid to do it. Don't get much better than that.

First tank of gas was 35.6 mph, second one was a lot better, 39.4, then 36.6, one at 38.3 and last one today was 41.5.

Riding single on interstate highway at just a little over posted. Only gassed it real hard once but that was when I got 41.5.

Well maybe a little more than just a little but nothing insane. Under 85.

Re: Mileage

That was from what the display was telling me.

Today, riding in the pouring rain for 5 hours, was getting 46.2.

Rain suit sprung a leak. When I got home and peeled it off, wife asked if I had missed a potty break. Crotch seam is in need of some sealing.

First time I've ridden it in the rain that something electrical didn't stop working till it dried out, everything still works.

Like the Bridgestone way better than the Metzler in the rain.

Re: Mileage

My leather snowmobile suit ripped in the same place while I was riding to Hammond LA. on Dec 30. It rained all day with temps in the 40s. The water had wicked down to my knees & up to my chest by the end of the day. Brrr!!!

Re: Mileage

When the weather was nice, saw all kinds of motorcycles on the road. When it got wet, only saw the BMWs. Those folks put on a rain suit and go.
